The Kansas City Royals and the Oakland Athletics will meet in their series finale this Sunday from Kauffman Stadium. Oakland took game two after scoring in three straight innings, 5-4.
Athletics Betting Preview
Oakland moved to 8-26 following the win over Kansas City. The Athletics won consecutive games for the first time this season, and they’ll now win to complete the sweep Sunday. The Oakland offense is scoring 2.81 runs per game, while batting .232, with a .311 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 7.39 ERA, with a 1.50 WHIP. Brent Rooker had another productive game yesterday, and he leads the team in batting (.330), HR (10), and RBI (26). Eatery Ruiz has come alive with hits in nine of the last ten games, and 16 RBI.
Mason Miller (0-1, 3.52 ERA, 17 Ks) will open the game for Oakland. The rookie righty put it all together is his last start at home versus Seattle, striking out six in seven shutout innings. Miller fanned six and allowed four in his lone road start in Anaheim versus the Angels.
Royals Betting Preview
Kansas City fell to 8-26 after losing to Oakland. The Royals have dropped three of four to start the month, and they’ll look to capitalize in this manageable home Saturday spot. The Kansas City offense is scoring 3.35 runs per game, while batting .233, with a .293 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.83 ERA, with a 1.74 WHIP. Vinnie Pasquantino has a RBI in five of the last six games, and he leads KC in batting at .282. Salvador Perez has a hit in nine of the last ten, and he leads the team in RBI (18).
Ryan Yarbrough (0-4, 7.40 ERA, 12 Ks) will get the call for Kansas City. The losses are starting to pile up for the sixth-year pitcher after starting the season successfully as a bullpen. Yarbrough did manage to toss a season-high five strikeouts last time out versus Baltimore, but he also gave up five runs and suffered a third straight losing decision.
Oakland vs Kansas City Trends
Oakland is 14-19 against the spread this season, with a 20-11-2 O/U record. Kansas City is 11-22 ATS this year, with a 16-15-2 over/under record.
Corey’s Free Pick
This will be a rock bottom for the KC if they let the A’s pull this sweep off. Oakland and Kansas City are now tied for the worse record in the league, so this rubber match will have an unwanted edge to it. I feel like Kansas City finds a way to stand their ground at home today, and avoid the embarrassment of being swept by the Athletics. Spot the Royals the runs for game three.
